Yesterday, after taking care of Erin’s traffic ticket in Jones County, NC, she, Brett & I headed out to Atlantic Beach. I took a weekday off (gasp!) and it was wonderful! Even though it rained on us going there and coming home, it was absolutely beautiful while we were there. A little windy, but not enough to kick the sand up in your face, so that’s a good thing and sunny & warm, warm, warm – not sauna hot and mosquito heavy like Raleigh.
I’d forgotten how much my kids are water-babies, as soon as we claimed our spot on the sand they rushed for the ocean to play in the waves (which were awesome because of the wind & nearby storms.) I went in, too, the kids said the water was cold, but it really wasn’t… it was almost lukewarm. There were even surfers out, which added to the entertainment value – which was a good thing because I left my reading glasses in the Jeep and yeah, I’m a blind old lady and too proud to up the Kindle’s font size any more than it already is – anyone want to sponsor me for some Lasik? No? That’s okay.
